I would like to claim a charitable donations tax deduction on my return but I do not have a charitable donation receipt. Can I still claim the donation?
Yes, you may still qualify for the charitable donations tax deduction without the charitable donation receipt. However you can only include cash donations, not property donations, of less than $250. And, you must provide a bank record or a payroll-deduction record to claim the tax deduction.
You need a receipt and other proof for both of these:
- Cash donations of $250 or more
- Non-cash donations
The IRS considers each donation separately. It doesn’t matter whether the donation to one organization reaches the $250 limit.
